Comedy Central Renews SOUTH PARK for Three More Seasons!
Comedy Central sure loves their South Park, and they aren’t looking to cancel it anytime soon. The network has renewed the series for three more season which will take it to a record-breaking 26th season and at least 327 episodes.
I love watching this show. Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and their team have been able to consistently keep it fresh and funny. In a statement, the creators joked:
“Apparently, our efforts to get our own show cancelled have fallen short. Luckily, we love Comedy Central and Kent Alterman and our staff so we are looking forward to new cancellation opportunities in the next few years.”
Parker and Stone will continue to write, direct, and edit every episode of South Park, just like they’ve been doing since the series premiered back in 1997. Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central, Paramount Network and TV Land added:
“South Park is the greatest comedy in the history of television, unmatched in its satirical strength and cultural relevancy and it shows no signs of slowing down. If humanity is still intact in 1,000 years, historians will see the most transcendent artists of our era as The Beatles, Muhammed Ali, and Matt and Trey. We’ll do as many seasons as they would like.”
So, I guess South Park will come to an end when Parker and Stone are finally ready to say goodbye. Obviously, as of right now, there are no plans to bring it to an end. That’s great news for the fans! I can’t wait to see what shenanigans are in store for Stan, Kyle, Cartman, Kenny, and co. in the future seasons!
